ENVS 015. Nature Rx: Wellbeing and the natural world

A growing body of research demonstrates the positive effects of nature on mood, cognition, and social behavior. In this course, we will explore current research on these topics and develop nature practices that support individual and community wellbeing. As students attending college at an arboretum, incorporating such practices in your everyday life is both much needed and readily accessible. This course will include weekly discussions, outdoor activities, and reflections that empower you to care for yourself and your community throughout college and beyond.
